(Breitbart) California’s newest U.S. Senator, Kamala Harris, revealed her first piece of legislation on Thursday, the Access to Counsel Act, which targets President Donald Trump’s travel restriction executive order by providing lawyers to anyone arriving at U.S. border crossings and ports of entry.
“Refugees, immigrants, students, and tourists all deserve to be able to access their lawyer in legal proceedings that could change the course of their lives, whether they enter the country at an airport or come across the border,” said Harris upon announcing the bill.
Harris left her position as California’s Attorney General to run for the Senate seat vacated by retiring Sen. Barbara Boxer.
